Was there risk assessment for BR1M?



This is certainly rare. Such specific question on the process of a Government aid programme, coming from an Opposition MP, is indeed very rare.  YB Shamsul Iskandar appears to be in agreement that BR1M is indeed noble and is concerned about the implementation or rather the leakages/misappropriation and or fraud.

Personally I have my reservations about BR1M. I'm still think BR1M should be scrapped but the MP seems to have some valid queries. YB Shamsul is confident that the Finance Ministry i.e. the Secretary General of Treasury Tan Sri Irwan Serigar Abdullah would have commissioned an elaborate risk assessment before BR1M was rolled out, and he wants the risk management study/report to be made public.

As I said earlier, Shamsul's pointed query has raised many questions, top of which is ' Did the Treasury actually carry out a risk assessment study/report? Is Shamsul fishing for something bigger?

The person who could possibly give us the answer must be Irwan Serigar himself. If the report is there, please make it public Tan Sri.

If not...

p/s Truly surprised with the Bukit Katil MPs ability to pose pertinent questions. ;-)
